Client Customization – Magical Wedding Rehearsal Invitation

We love the concept and overall feel the combination of design elements evokes on this invitation. What better way to have guests anticipating a “magical night under the stars” than with gold foil stamped stars, a blind letterpress impression of a tropical palm tree, gold edge painting and a fanciful script!

This invitation is a perfect example of a couple making the most of every piece of stationery in their wedding suite. If your heart is set on a traditional wedding invitation, but you’re feeling the pull to do something unique, why not have fun with your rehearsal dinner or Sunday brunch invitation? We’re here to help you define every piece of stationery for your wedding. Visit your local stationer and Dauphine Press retailer to get their expert advice on finding your design style!

Suite Spotlight – Princeton Foil Stamped Wedding Invitation

We love every one of our invitation designs equally, but with this round of new wedding invitation samples for our Custom Wedding Portfolio II we may have played favorites … we love the technique of using two layers of foil stamping on our last new design, Princeton. We hope you love it as much as we do!

An epic day deserves an equally glorious and captivating invitation. The Princeton wedding invitation suite is your perfect match with an abundance of sweet romance and the most opulent elements. Printed in both pearl and silver foil on a sweet die-cut card and paired with shimmery metallic envelope liner and response envelope, this suite is like a vintage piece of jewelry saved for the most extraordinary of events.

We created our Custom Wedding Portfolio knowing that every couple we work with would like the opportunity to customize their wedding stationery. We love creating inspiration, like the Princeton wedding invitation suite, to show you how you can dream big like two layers of foil stamping and a diecut shape! Pairing your ideas with the elements in our Custom Wedding Portfolio, you’re sure to end up with a design that is unique to you and your wedding day. Best of all, it is also designed to be fun! We encourage you to scour our website {don’t forget to check out our Search By Style feature} and meet with the experts at your local Dauphine Press retailer to get their guidance and input.

Client Customization – Fancy Foil Stamped Save the Date

Using our Fairfield invitation pattern as their inspiration, the couple behind today’s Client Customization created a design that is the epitome of “traditional with a twist”. Our Fairfield pattern is set as a foil border detail, framing a classic save the date design with the client-created monogram and script font. The “twist” this couple designed – along with their local Dauphine Press retailer Carolyn at The Write Touch in Jacksonville, Florida – is a layer of pale pink letterpress ink (our shell) under the gold foil border. We love the dimension the printed solid creates under the foil stamped border!

Client Customization – Larkspur Invitation Featuring Pearl & Rose Gold Foil

Today’s client customization is simply stunning! Lauren and Alexander worked with our retailer Elizabeth Grace to create their version of our Larkspur wedding invitation suite. Layering the suite with two different colors of foil (pearl and a custom rose gold!) and traditional black letterpress resulted in a lovely traditional invitation for this couple. Using the pearl foil for all of the patterns creates a beautiful backdrop for the rose gold foil frames and black letterpress printed wording. We’re in love with the results!
